This course offers me a quite unique way of thinking about the meaning making of the themes throughout the past 6 weeks. For example, week 4 put forward my notice on the kinship chart in several aspects with generally in terms of my mom’s side and dad’s side, and from the perspectives of the relatives amount, gender as well as their marital statue. This gives me the insights of looking at the ways in which people are related to each other and how we define family, male, and female from the perspective of kinship system. Week 5 has shed lights on making a living and building a life. According to the reading, there were a few different types of exchange systems we discussed in class, including hunter/gatherer, horticulturist, agriculturalist, and industrialist. The focus of this week is on economic systems, labor, and production and how the individual navigates these systems to provide for his- or herself and family. Besides, week 6 discussed globalization and the Interconnected World. I’ve used the example of Shanghai Disneyland which is officially open recently, American culture has a great influence in China and it has a distinct attributes of consumption culture, China’s cultural market is with the potential development of blowout, but the cultural industry in China is still at the lower stage of development, mostly it is still in the developing mode of imitating other countries, the United States is the key object to imitate. This theme gives us the meaning of considering the ways that culture, goods and people move from one place to another and how they are incorporated in the new place. Overall, I’ve learnt that how to look at the culture from many different perspectives and dimensions, thinking about the culture across the boundaries from a way of how anthropologists do. On the other hand, this course provides a very interesting way of learning the type of methods of the anthropologists use to do.
